Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa addressed a passing out parade at the Royal Military Academy as the first Pakistani dignitary who was invited as the chief guest.

Apart from UK cadets, 41 international cadets from 26 various countries including two cadets from Pakistan military academy — Cadet Muhammad Abdullah Babar and Cadet Mujtaba — have passed out.

COAS Bajwa has become the first Pakistani ever to be the representative of the Queen during the sovereign’s parade at the Military Academy Sandhurst.

According to the UK’s Defence Ministry, General Bajwa represented the Queen at the sovereign’s parade for commissioning course 213 (CC213) of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) on Friday during a ceremony that attracted military leaders from dozens of countries of the world.

This was the 198th sovereign’s parade where General Bajwa became the first Pakistani to be the sovereign’s representative.

General Bajwa was accompanied at the parade by Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Iftikhar Babar and Pakistani High Commission's military attache Col Rana Asif Khan.

While addressing the ceremony, General Bajwa expressed his gratitude for representing the Queen, terming it a “unique honour and great privilege.”

He congratulated the passing out cadets and their families for the successful completion of their training course.

“Your alma matter is, without a doubt, one of the finest military institutions in the world which have produced some of the great military leaders that this world has seen,” he said, adding that graduating from Sandhurst is a great honour and pride.

“Two Pakistani candidates are also graduating and I want to share that I am as proud of all of you as I am of the two of them,” he maintained.

He said: “My presence here is a testimony of the deep-rooted relationship that exists between Pakistan and the United Kingdom based on mutual respect and shared values which have been carefully nurtured by both the nations over many decades.”

Is this a good news or bad? I mean if our cadets top British academy, that is something.. I guess he was just chief guest of the ceremony so nothing to worry about.

He represented the head of their state

Very odd and it seems that’s the consensus

Great honor
Just really really wrong timing and optics

Doesn’t the ISPR advise him that this is very bad optics?

Seriously.
That’s what @Jango and I assert is that not every role is suited to the GDE( General Duties Employee) attitude of the Pakistani military.
Instead of taking a few courses(or none at all) and then running various organizations they need to realize not only are they not jack of all trades but they degrade their mastery of the core tasks assigned to them by doing so.

Nothing wrong with visiting Royal Acedamy
